7 Habits Song {Adele} + NonFiction Text Features Rap

First, if you didn't enter the giveaway from yesterday's post...do it NOW by clicking the image below!

As I have mentioned, I spent this week teaching some workshops at my school's Summer Academy.  My absolute FAVORITE thing about teaching workshops is learning from the teachers who attend!!

I thought I would share a couple of my favorite new things with you.  If you've followed my blog for a bit, you already know how much I L-O-V-E music.  It's rare when I don't have music playing in the background at any given moment and my classroom is no different. 

I especially love when I find "cool" music for the classroom.  You know, not lyrics to the tune of "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" {although, I use those, too!!}, but songs that are written to pop tunes that the kiddos LOVE.

Well, check this out!  My school does the 7 Habits and I've heard some songs to go along with them, but was never super impressed with any of them....until NOW!

This is a middle-schooler, Jannah Bolin, singing a 7 Habits song to Adele.....y'all - she's going to be famous one day!  AMAZING!!
Nothing gave me chills this past year like listening to my little kiddos sing Adele from our Kidz Bop CD, so you can bet I'm teaching them this song early in the year!

I also LOVE some rap!  What can I say...I'm an early 90s girl! :)  This is a super cute NonFiction Text Features Rap that my sweet friend, Kristen, who presented with me at the workshops shared.  I have never used it in my class, but I thought it was super cute.  I'll be using it this year!

My very first linky party when I created my blog last summer was all about music to use in the classroom.  I still refer back to that linky party to get great song ideas.  You can visit it here.

Have you found any NEW FAVORITE songs that you just love for your classroom?  I'd love to hear about them so I can add them to my ever-growing list!

Off for a little lunch downtown with my mom and then we're hitting the gym!  See ya tomorrow!

  1. I agree that Jannah Bolin will be a star one day! That song was amazing. I will definitely be playing it in my classroom this year. I'm so glad that I follow your blog so that I can get more amazing ideas as I teach second grade for the first time this year.

  3. I love the 7 habits video! I am thinking about incorporating that into my class this year. Are you at a 7 habits school, or do you just use it in your classroom?

  4. I was hoping our district would adopt the 7 habits last year, and now I'm hoping for it even more! Wow, that is one very talented young lady!! Major props to her parents and TEACHERS! Amanda, did you catch the lyrics to the chorus? I would love to teach it to students but can't understand what she says after "respect on the..." bus? on a team or in a dress?? not exactly sure on that, but everything else is pretty clear;) Thanks so much for sharing!

    1. I THINK it says "respect on the bus, in a team earn trust" - I need to slow it down and write down the lyrics for a powerpoint for my kiddos to read. I'll post it, when I do! BTW - I just read that Jannah WROTE this song, too! So impressive!

    2. Another lyric that I have trouble understanding is right after "respect on the bus" (thanks for clearing that up, btw) that starts with "responsible for yourself, knowledge ????????????" Anyone know what that lyric is?

  5. Love these ideas! Thank you so much for sharing them :)
    from Well, Michelle?

  6. My class loved that song last year. Once, a little boy asked if we could watch the "hot girl" sing the 7 habits song...We had to discuss the proper use of "hot" in the second grade. =)

Hoping to get it going in my classroom this year :)

  12. I never believed in love spells or magic until I met this spell caster once when i went to see my friend in Indian this year on a business summit. I meant a man who's name is Dr ATILA he is really powerful and could help cast spells to bring back one's gone, lost, misbehaving lover and magic money spell or spell for a good job or luck spell .I'm now happy & a living testimony cos the man i had wanted to marry left me 5 weeks before our wedding and my life was upside down cos our relationship has been on for 3years. I really loved him, but his mother was against us and he had no good paying job. So when i met this spell caster, i told him what happened and explained the situation of things to him. At first i was undecided,skeptical and doubtful, but i just gave it a try. And in 7 days when i returned to Canada, my boyfriend (now husband) called me by himself and came to me apologizing that everything had been settled with his mom and family and he got a new job interview so we should get married. I didn't believe it cos the spell caster only asked for my name and my boyfriends name and all i wanted him to do. Well we are happily married now and we are expecting our little kid, and my husband also got the new job and our lives became much better. His email is atilahealinghome@yahoo.com
